"It's 1934, and Shakespeare's most famous fairies, Oberon and Puck, have magically materialized on the Warner Bros. Hollywood set of Max Reinhardt's A Midsummer Night's Dream. Instantly smitten by the glitz and glamour of show biz, the two are ushered onto the silver screen to play (who else?) themselves. With a little help from a feisty flower, blonde bombshells, movie moguls, and arrogant "asses" are tossed into loopy love triangles, with raucous results. The mischievous magic of moviedom sparkles in this hilarious comic romp."--Publisher's website.

"Lend Me A Tenor is a furiously paced comedy with more than a touch of the Marx brothers... A marvelous combination of wonderful farcical moments and funny lines." Time Out New York "Somewhere up above, George S. Kaufman, Abe Burrows, Moss Hart and all those clever fellows who wrote the comedies of yesteryear are rolling with laughter, echoing the audience last night at Moon Over Buffalo. The play is nothing less than a love letter to live theater." Boston Herald "Ludwig's comedy [Leading Ladies] is so funny, it will make sophisticated and reasonable men and women of the 21st century cackle till their faces hurt." The Houston Press "Shakespeare in Hollywood is so deliciously inventive, you'd swear Ludwig and the Bard were in cahoots. At once poignant and funny, literary and farcical, sophisticated and silly, political and fanciful, high-brow and low-brow... a delight!" The Baltimore Sun

Each year thousands of actors descend upon New York City, Los Angeles, and other major cities with dreams of making it big. But of the 100,000 or more professional actors in the U.S. only about 2 to 3 percent of them actually earn a living on stage or screen. It's a tough business, and even talented people give up the profession due to financial insecurity. Too bad they didn't read Actor, Inc. You've got to pay your dues before you pay the rent - that's why so many actors find themselves waiting on tables while waiting for parts. Actor, Inc. sees it differently. Jamie Grady shows you how to take charge, blend your personal and professional lives, and become an artistic entrepreneur. Grady leaves the artistry to you but shows you basic money-management techniques for staying afloat, and more advanced ideas that give you the financial freedom to get ahead. Grady interviews members of the field for tips on everything a professional actor should know not only to survive but to make a living - and maybe even retire one day: defining success to avoid failure setting financial goals you can reach organizing an efficient home office - even if it's only your couch managing your time so you don't run out of it prioritizing your spending when saving is a priority making debt go away...and stay away investing for retirement even if you aren't established making sure Uncle Sam gets his so he doesn't get you. Don't become a starving artist. With its resources, exercises, forms, and street smarts, Actor, Inc. is the book that makes acting work for you.

Ludwig Berger . Though this film is now lost , it is only natural that Ludwig Berger
